QUEEN CREEK, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities say they’ve seized more than a dozen dogs from a Queen Creek couple.

The Arizona Shih Tzu Rescue notified the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office on Jan. 8 that multiple dogs needed to be rescued.

The sheriff’s office says deputies went to the home and observed dogs living in cages with feces and urine.

They placed the couple on notice, giving them an opportunity to improve the conditions for the animals.

Sheriff’s Animal Crimes detectives seized 15 dogs Wednesday and took them to Palm Glen Animal Hospital.

The dogs appeared to be malnourished and most needed immediate care.

Sheriff’s officials say charges against 66-year-old Kathleen Marshall and 63-year old Kevin Marshall are pending the results from the veterinary assessment.
